Happy Thanksgiving Weekend!

There just are not many weekends better than this one – turkey and more food than any human should consume, football games galore, Black Friday shopping and Christmas decorating time. What would life be without it all!??

Here’s wishing everyone a great Thanksgiving and a wonderful start to the 2008 Holiday Season!


What About the Fellas?

Back in the early 1990s a group that would become known as “das fellas” formed in the heartland of Texas, at Howard Payne University in Brownwood. Over the years the group has included the likes of many from the DFW area and even a lone TCU grad.

Myself, Clint Locks, David Curlee, David Tercek, Tim Williams and Scott Rinehart were the founders if you will and for the most part we stay in touch. The likes of Matt Sherman, Michael Harris, Ralph Jensen, Chris Novinger, Jason Myers, Greg Hightower and some others have since become a part of the clan. From the filming of “Attack of the Killer Spoons” in 1993 to “Revenge of the Forks” in 2007 (still in production – ehm Dave) the fellas have been one hilarious group.

Saturday a huge day occured as the final fella holding out on family and marriage finally agreed to terms with his lovely woman, Jenn. Yes, Scott Rinehart took the plunge before 40 (and hopefully before 10pm Saturday after the ceremony – he,he) and got himself married!

Michael T did the same a few months earlier leaving Scott as the lone “single”, never married ranger.

Not no mo.

He is now married and the fellas are officially off the market.

Sorry ladies, but it was about time we all grew up….

Ozarks Bring Much Needed FRESH AIR

Last year at this time Julie and I discovered our favorite getaway in Carmel, CA. This year we discovered another new favorite, Eureka Springs, AR.

Once you get through the beating called Oklahoma (seriously, has to be the ugliest terrain and worse roads ever), and enter Arkansas, you quickly learn why it is called the “natural state”. It is beautiful, espeically in the fall when most trees are bright red, yellow, green or orange.

The Ozarks provide an incredible sense of getting away from it all. We spent out time touring the mountain area, eating, resting and even made our way up to Branson, MO for a day.

Ahh, I wish I could still breath the cool, crisp air. For pics visit our website:

November is National Adoption Month

We are so grateful for our son and how he was brought into our lives in 2008. For the next 4 weeks we ask that each of you say a special prayer for children in the world that need families and consider donating to help other families who are considering adopting.

Our adoptiong agency has a fund setup in honor of our son, Quinn. Donations can be made here:
http://www.dillonadopt.com/ Just search for the Quinn fund. All donations go to families looking to adopt that need financial assistance.

Every child deserves a family, maybe you can be that family! Think about it. Your life will never be the same!
